If they are not brand new then they probably need to be balanced. Since tread has been used then the tires are out of balance. Also you just put the tires on and now you have DW. See what im saying.

For sure man... I also figured the added height might have something to do with it. Going to get them balanced tomorrow and see if that helps.

So I total today I went to 4 junk yards in 3 different states. Ended up with the black fender I needed, some np242 conversion stuff, and luckily found tow bar frame mounts and adapters that came off easily, and a key fob. Now to snag the tow bar out of my parents attic while I am up here... Good deals on all of it!

Oh yeah, does anyone know a way to remove the pin stripe? Or is sanding and paint the best option?

Yours is painted on? I thought 93-95 was painted on and 96-98 was just a sticker? Thats the reason why I still have a pinstripe, its beneath the clearcoat.

I thought I was going to need a new AC compressor but I installed a new clutch drive plate for 34.99 and it works great. Made my day.

It's gotta be a 93-95 with newer Laredo clad. It has chrome lettering and Laredo outline on it, with white and red painted pinstripe.

Today. I bought my ZJ.

1996 ZJ stock everything, white.

Also changed the breaks and filled the tank. Very expensive day, that's for sure.

Congratulations.

OT: filled her up and bought some cheapo lights for the rear of my rack from harbor freight. Going to install those and my kc's up front this weekend.

I tinted the tail lights last night and fixed the trim on the driver door that was falling off.
